    I don't know how applicable this is to your specific situation but I just received a LIPO battery that I ordered through amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00) here in Afghanistan. Granted, the rules for sending mail to an APO address may differ from mailing to a European residential address. It took nine days to arrive from the day it shipped. I think the overall delivery from the date I ordered was 11 days.

    This release by the USPS may also be of interest: http://about.usps.com/news/national-...2/pr12_128.htm

    Hope that helps!

    If using US Postal Service, it is illegal to ship LiPo battery packs to countries outside the US and sadly this includes APO addresses. The new USPS update noted above applies only to Lithium battery packs installed in the appropriate device when shipped.

    The USPS allows shipping of LiPo battery packs within the US if the battery packs are packaged according to USPS regulations and the shipping box has the proper indentifying label on it.

    Well, I can't comment on the legality of it, only on my personal experience. Amazon sent a solo LiPo to an APO address through USPS. I got it three days ago and promptly used it to destroy an A arm on my 4x4 slash.

    from tower hobbies to france it take around 1week/10 days most of the time .... sometimes a little bit longer but i've never wait more than 12 days. the main prob for me is the shipping price a little bit high imo.
